Benedictions on the Escapes

Benedictions on the Escapes

June 21, 2021

“While waiting for their son Diego to return from a demonstration, Esper wonders about his safety and about her husband who has returned home early from work. Esper has recently passed the citizenship test. At first reluctant to tell her, Manny finally admits that he has been furloughed from his work because of the Covid-19 virus. When Diego arrives, energized from the demonstrations, he inspires Esper and Manny to review and renew their lives in this country.”

Can you join protests if you are worried about paying the light bill or the rent? And what of losing a job, struggling with online classes, fighting for subsidies . . .  Our 20-21 season of Radioplays ends with this dramatic yet uplifting family offering by playwright Benjamin V. Marshall, directed by John Pietrowski. Presented in 1-Act of about 38 minutes, this compressed "world-theatre" manages to cover the big three concerns of our time: Immigration, the Covid pandemic, and the Black Lives Matter movement, and makes us all stronger in the process.

A podcast within a Radioplay within a . . .   The Switch is a work of fiction set within a virtual broadcast studio. An analysis of "Freaky Friday" leads to a blurred continuity between caller and host, redefining submission and dominance in an electronic era.

"The Switch is a work of fiction inspired by the writing of Steve Almond, John Paul Brammer, Daniel M. Lavery, Dan Savage, and Cheryl Strayed; as well as by Sarah Lunnie’s 2016 Salon piece “Maybe the word ‘rapist’ is a problem,” Susan Choi’s novel Trust Exercise, Davey Wreden’s game The Beginner’s Guide - and of course, Freaky Friday."
